Sarah Chiren ’16

How did you choose your area of study?

The decision to study neuroscience was natural for me. I have always been fascinated with how the human brain works and communicates with the body, how we learn and remember, and why some people suffer from diseases of the brain such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression and epilepsy. Neuroscience is vastly growing, with incredible research published daily. I most look forward to the opportunity to work in a neuroscience research laboratory. I believe that the thought and logic processes required to understand neuroscience are crucial to any career in health and medicine. My ultimate career goal is to attend medical school or graduate school for a career in neuroscience research.
